Marga Giezen won the Webspringer front end, made by and donated by Kruyswater Motorcycles. The fork, with a retail price of 1275,- euro’s was given to Marga on stage. Her bike, a Yamaha XS 650 in bobber style, still has the OEM front end and it will look a lot better with the Kruyswater forks! The Yamaha is built by her husband Ger Voetman, who loves to work on the XS-models as a hobby and nicknamed themselves GM Choppers.

Shot Cut Choppers, Ede, awarded the #221, a traditional old school seventies  Ironhead
Chopper from Belgium, owned by Horst. He received a 150,- euro’s cheque.

JL Promotions had 3 Jesse James jackets to give away. The first to answer the question asked on stage; “Which edition of the Bigtwin Bikeshow & Expo is this?”was given a Jesse James jacket, and that was one of the Bikeshow Competitors, Harry de Vreede, who correctly anwered: ”The 24th!”. The two other Lucky ones were Gerrit Aanstoot with his Savage with amazing, self done paint job and the WL based psychedelic looking bike by Kristof Daenekind.

The worst wiring! You’ve seen it many times, a nicely built custom bike with wiring that looks like somebody through a pan of spaghetti over it, with ugly looking wires averywhere… Well, this time it was not that bad, but still Motorcycle Academy’s Peter Barsselaar gave away a training course Bike Wiring to competitor # 189, Anita de Graaf’s bike.

Anita does look, errrr, not like Anita!
